Manchester United’s midfield legend Ryan Giggs has admitted to his club being too reliant on their star forward Wayne Rooney. With Cristiano Ronaldo leaving at the season’s start, the task of scoring United’s goals fell squarely on Rooney’s shoulders and Giggs believes that they need more fire power if they wish to remain a force in the Premier League.
“If you had to say one thing, you’d probably say we can’t rely on Wayne next season like we did this one," Giggs told the Daily Mirror.
"We need to be scoring more goals from different areas and from different players, even though as a team we scored more than we did last season.
"We were also better defensively this season than last, but we can’t rely on Wayne as much as we have done this season in terms of goals.”
"On Sunday against Stoke we started full of hope, then came in at half-time and found out Chelsea were 2-0 up and Wigan were down to 10 men.
"We knew then it was over and, to be honest, we didn’t want to go out for the second half. You just want to go home in that situation."
Wayne Rooney is 12/1 with Victor Chandler to be top scorer at the World Cup which starts on June 10th .
